St. Martin was a humble Dominican lay brother from Peru. His days were filled with nursing the sick and caring for the poor. Brother Martin was instrumental in founding an orphanage, took care of slaves brought from Africa and managed the daily alms of the priory with practicality as well as generosity. Among the many miracles attributed to him were those of levitation, bilocation, miraculous knowledge, instantaneous cures, and a remarkable rapport with animals.
